How is everyone? Had a good week? :)
On Saturday morning I made a lovely Tau - although most people would
call it a Pie (or Pi). However, I call it tau because pi needs to be
multiplied by two to make it a whole, while tau is just a whole. So that
would mean a pie is actually half a Tau. Understand?
I made some pastry on Friday (500 grams of flour, 250 grams of butter,
and some salt and about a cup of water), and then on Saturday morning I
put the oven to about 200 and then started browning the mince. I added
some stock to the mince, then put in the carrot and potato that I'd
diced into it.
I halved the pastry and rolled out one to fit the tray. I rolled out the other half and cut a bit off to make the Tau sign.
When the filling was ready I scooped it into the tray and ate what
couldn't fit for breakfast. I put on the top of the Tau and added the
Tau sign, then popped it in the oven whilst I got ready to leave for my
circus class. When I had finished getting ready I turned off the heat
and left the Tau in the oven.
When I got home it was perfect, and I had a piece of it. It was so good cold, I don't want to have it warmed up!!
Well, it was soon gone come Sunday evening. Here's the pictures of it:
Let me know if you make your own Tau! (or Pi!!)
